Got some decent work done today for the time spent. Got the toilet fixed in my sons room. Now hopefully he'll get off diapers. LOL Here are some before pics of the utility room and the room before the theater where the equip rack will go. Then you can see the difference of the insulation and then I made some joist speaker boxes for the in walls of the adjoining basement room. We use this room for card playing and my wife uses it as a craft room also.
Our master bedroom is right above the utility room and also this multi purpose room in the basement and when things are even mildly loud it transfers too well into the master. I have noticed a big difference since the insulation alone and the boxes for the speakers.
Also got the soffit drywall down and cleaned up. I needed this down first so that the HVAC guys can come in to see how they will be doing the multi - zone setup. Along with that I have this what I thought was a water leak ticking noise when the guest bathroom uses water and i sometimes hear it when the kitchen is using water. I thought for sure I would be able to see something once this came down but I am lost. It also only seems to be there in the winter but it sounds exactly like water dripping.
I hope to get all of the lines that are spread out in the soffit brought in closer together and talk with them about possibly raising the ducts. We'll see.
